    So heres my problem:

    Bought a computer a little while back wit specs that i was sure would play most any game i wanted to. I took that PC and my ATI HD 3600 series card, put em together and now it will work.....almost. The PC now freezes every potential game i try to play. I beleive this has something to do with hardware and software compatibility because of the fact that yesterday i could play Halo maxed out, but only before i updated. After the update, froze after 10 minutes.

    Ive checked temps and it doesnt seem like the CPU or GPU is getting very hot very quickly or at the very least within 10 minutes (the time it takes to freeze).

    Another thing that may be helpful to know is that this was a slim PC before, in a different case but for cooling and so my card would fit i put it all into a bigger case. I also used my 500w power supply instead of the stock.

    any help?:D
